    Hmmm, toying with the idea of getting Limbo.

    Worth it?

    Limbo and Shadow Complex bought online. Pretty sweet as I was going to end up getting Limbo sooner rather than later. All these sale are putting me spending 1200 points on Super Meat Boy (I didn’t have a 360 when it was released at the cheaper price)

    If you don’t get Limbo at this price you’ve got mental problems. I’d buy it again if I could!

    Limbo’s great, I really enjoyed it. Shadow Complex is amazing too, everyone should get that.

    Toying with the idea of giving Trials HD another whirl. I didn’t get on with the demo when it first launched, but everyone keeps saying how brilliant it is so perhaps I ought to have another go at it.

    Cheers folks and yep Blerk, I had the exact same impression as you did, the game however is like pixellated crack.

    It really is. Quite easily among my top three purchases for the service I reckon.
